The rumors state the following:
- The Xbox One GPU is getting an increase in clock speed
- The Xbox One DDR3 RAM will increase from 8GB to 12GB [This has been debunked. I'll cite the 10-July update from the same original Examiner article above]
- The Xbox One development team is asking for developer feedback on changes they would want to see hardware wise.
As I have said in the past, these rumors come and go and it's hard to justify reporting on every one. But when I approached a trusted source of mine regarding them... I was surprised by the answer, to say the least.Essentially, my source has confirmed that the increase in GPU clock speed is 100% true,
with the increase happening in direct response to the PlayStation 4. The increase has been a reality since before the reveal, as they have "been reacting to Sony ever since the first leaks of both systems." The news of this bump in clock speed was announced to first parties only, as they "actively spread disinformation to 3rd parties just before reveal to prevent leaks."
